Happy New Year Everyone!
No better way to bring in the New year then with knitting needles in your hands! I found this photo at Los Angeles Times Photography. It is from 2011 but I found it to be the best New Year's photo google had to offer. The Artist pictured is Mansha Friedrich of Hanover Germany. I do not know how to read (or speak) German but she appears to be a known Artist who creates large works of art using fiber, called Urban Knitting, very similar to what I call Yarn bombing but on a larger and more artistic scale. All I can say about that is. . . YOU GO GIRL! And Mansha, if you get to read this: Hello From Kansas, USA!
Well, we've been in to 2013 for almost 12 hours now. . .and I haven't bought any yarn. Phew, doing good so far. I kinda of panicked the other day, what if I NEEDED more dishcloth cotton? *rolls eyes* I can do this. I will do this. I NEED to do this.
I am writing this from a coffee shop. They are having a "Hangover Brunch" and asked my husband to provide some live music. Though I am not hungover (I didn't drink at all last night), drinking coffee and listening to him play is a great way to spend my first day of 2013. Hope everyone else has something lovely to enjoy today!
